A\C Troubles

I have a 1990 3.0L Ford Taurus. The A\C has a leak in one of the hoses, only I don't know where it is. Since the A\C uses R-12(Freon) how should I go about finding the leak?

What makes you think it's a hose? the evaporators are notorious on those. You'll need an electronic leak detector. You can spot suspect areas with oil stains but you can't see the evaporator. An ultraviolet light will be helpful if you inject some dye a few weeks earlier.
